Bandwidth Forecasting

Bandwidth-demand planning will be critical for enterprise IT departments to successfully budget and execute their internal networks, server/storage and third party connections. Failure to plan within a company’s broader business plans creates the risk that the enterprise bottom line will be negatively impacted when IT has to “spend its way” out of capacity problems.

Enterprise Management

Enterprise IT departments have a huge responsibility in keeping technology running smoothly. In the past, much of the networking budget was spent on overly-complex optical chassis that needed specialists to configure and manage. Today, as bandwidth continues to be in high demand, a less complex server room or data center becomes highly desirable. XKL has engineered easy-to-use products with busy network administrators in mind.

Go optical from floor to floor in your own building and gain the simplicity of connecting switches, routers, servers or computers. Management and monitoring of the entire XKL network is a snap through an integrated optical service channel or the front panel copper ports.

Data centers have to make sure that bandwidth and connectivity for their top tier clients is in place and available even before their users know they need it. You can build a simple private optical backbone using XKL systems that aggregate multiple 10G Ethernet links and Fibre Channel ports into 100Gbps of mixed traffic through each 1U system. Designed and priced for enterprise environments, XKL systems are managed and monitored just like the routers and switches that are already installed. Installation time is less than an hour, and no optical experience is necessary.

Financial Network

A 1-millisecond advantage in trading applications can contribute to millions of dollars in annual revenue to a major brokerage firm.

The demand for high volume, high-frequency trading has only increased in recent years. Latency doesn’t just matter when markets are going up, either. During a recent downturn, many financial networks struggled to keep up with trade volume, resulting in slow or stalled-out transactions. The delays cost investors (large and small) a significant amount in lost earnings. Financial trading firms’ success relies heavily on the speed and reliability of the DWDM infrastructure within their complex networks. Financial firms looking to gain an edge in today’s competitive marketplace seek to find a network with the lowest possible latency for high-frequency trading, without sacrificing reliability. These firms require the ability to scale quickly, using real-time backup synchronization with business recovery functions.

XKL systems deliver the lowest latency possible while providing maximum dependability for high performance trading. We achieve a 100Gps solution without the processing overhead that often slows down a network.

XKL products are unique because they are designed for router technicians, who can get them up and running quickly and easily. Because the majority of XKL products are designed to fit 1U of rack space, an organization can save on space, power, and cooling costs. This smaller size is becoming increasingly important, as firms can pay a significant monthly fee per rack for colocation services. Easy to deploy and easy to manage, the XKL product line is an efficient way to manage Layer 1 transport.

Research & Development

Large campus-like institutions and R&D departments process an almost inconceivable amount of data, including videos. These organizations require a fast, reliable and secure connection. Oftentimes these metro or campus networks need to expand to connect multiple locations, making scalability among their most critical needs. XKL can help you grow metro networks into regional networks easily and economically. 

XKL’s Regional DWDM Networks grow metro networks into regional networks easily and economically. Integrated EDFAs and standalone inline amplifiers expand the metro DWDM network’s range into a regional network, extending the metro network 80km range to a regional network of 400km or greater. Separating the optical backbone from Layer 2 and 3 and modularizing the network simplifies the complexity of card cage chassis transport. In short, our XKL optical equipment provides capacity and range you didn’t know existed.

XKL optical networking systems can connect with any mix of traffic separated by up to 2,000 km. Familiar command-line interface control and integrated network management using standard protocols keep packet manipulation in the switches and routers, where it belongs.
